cinnamon twists

Imagine you're hard at work, your fingers are cold from too much typing and your feet have been stationery so you developed pins and needles. Imagine you’re tired and sleepy but you have to get the report done for tomorrow.

Then imagine that the second you hit save, and congratulate yourself for finishing your work, you hear your husband calling from the kitchen to tell you that he’s made you an evening snack.


I came out from the study to discover this yummy little cinnamon twists and a big cup of Mexican-style hot chocolate waiting for me.

He’d just whipped it all up from ingredients we had on hand!

Cinnamon Twists
Jonas’ very own recipe. Makes 6-8.
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, softened
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Milk, for wash
1. Preheat oven to temperature recommended by pastry manufacturer.
2. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a bowl then sprinkle over pastry.
3. Slice the pastry sheet so that you cut rough pie slice shapes.
4. Roll the wide ends in so that the twist finishes in a point that can be folded decoratively on top.
5. Brush with milk to encourage a glossy finish.
6. Bake in the oven until puffy and slightly browned (around 15-20 minutes). Eat while still warm.
Note: you could do any number of different flavours: nutella, jam, fruit, cheese, tomato and garlic – the possibilities are endless.

What a dreamy hubby :)



Thanks for saying hello. It's great to know there are people out there in cyberspace!
